EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

In process of revising ECC/REC/(02)06 over the period from 2009 to 2011 there was a need to get the overview, of what
channelization did CEPT Administrations use in different bands of the frequency range 7125-8500 MHz. This is in order to
find solution for limited number of channelization options on one hand, and to allow, on the other hand, a wider
implementation of the ECC Recommendation.
A number of the administrations had implemented the Annex 1 (7125-7725 MHz) of the ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2002).
In the gap (7725-7900 MHz) between Annex 1 and Annex 2 (7900-8500 MHz) of ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2002), a
number of administrations had implemented their channel arrangement in accordance with different annexes of
Recommendation ITU-R F.385 and Recommendation ITU-R F.386 or national plans.
In 2010, the most implement channel arrangements in the CEPT are summarised below:

Differences in channel arrangements (e.g. frequency ranges, carrier spacing, duplex spacing) are significant, therefore the
harmonization of the band 7125 8500 MHz is difficult.
ECC/REC (02)06 (version 2002) did not cover the whole range. It had a gap band between 7725-7900 MHz.

The ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2002) was revised based on the outcome of this report by introducing the most common
approaches taken by administrations for managing the whole (or the available portions) of the band 7125-8500 MHz. Two
options are introduced depending on the national availability of the various sub-ranges, which give possibility to widely
implement the recommendation ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2011).
Note that the channel arrangement in 7725-8275 MHz, based on Annex 6 to ITU-R Recommendation F.386 (with 29.65
MHz channel arrangement providing 8 bidirectional channels), has been used for a long time by a number of CEPT
administrations because no other arrangement is available for this frequency band. However, when planning to restructure
the band or in case Administrations are newly designating this band to fixed wireless systems, Administrations are
encouraged to consider a new channel arrangement, based on 28 MHz channel separation (providing 9 bidirectional
channels), which is provided in ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2011) as defined in Annex 1.2.1.

The usage of the 7125-8500 MHz band within the CEPT for the elaboration of
the revision of the ECC/REC/(02)06 from version 2002 to version 2011
1

INTRODUCTION

In the process of revising recommendation ECC/REC/(02)06 for including additional channel arrangements in the band
(7725-8500 MHz), over the period from the beginning of 2009 till the end of 2010, this ECC report was used as a basis for
finding a solution to cover the whole frequency range from 7125-8500 MHz by limited number of channelization options
on one hand, and allow, on the other hand, a wider implementation of the ECC Recommendation.
It was recognised that a number of the administrations have implemented the ECC/REC/(02)06 (Version 2002) Annex 1
(7125-7725 MHz). It was noted that in the gap (7725-7900 MHz) between Annex 1 and Annex 2 (7900-8500 MHz), a
number of administrations had already implemented their channel arrangement in accordance with different annexes of
Recommendation ITU-R F.385 and Recommendation ITU-R F.386. Therefore the harmonization of the band 7125-8500
MHz with a limited number of annexes in the revised ECC/REC/(02)06 seemed to be difficult at that point of time.
The aim of this ECC Report was at collecting and assessing the usage of the 7725-8500 MHz band per country in order to
get the overview of the usage of the ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 2 (version 2002). The information on the usage of the 71257725 MHz was also provided in this report in order to find the optimal solution for covering the gap between Annex 1 and
Annex 2 of ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2002) with limited number of annexes.

Conclusion for frequency bands 7125-8 500 MHz


1.

In the lower bands 71257725 MHz 63.2 % of administrations use channel arrangements in ECC/REC/(02)06
Annex 1 (version 2002) - ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 1.1 (version 2011) or ITU-R F.385-9 Annex 1, which are
compatible. Other usages are ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 2.2 (version 2011) - ITU-R F.385-9 Annex 4, ITU-R F.3859 basic, Annex 3, Annex 5. Some administrations have their own national channel arrangements.

2.

In the upper bands 7725-8500 MHz 12 administrations of 38 use ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 2 (version 2002) ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 2.3 (version 2011) (31.6 %). Other usages are ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 1.2 (version
2011) - ITU-R F.386-8 Annex 6, ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 1.3 (version 2011) - ITU-R F.386-8 Annex 2,
ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 2.2 (version 2011) - ITU-R F.385-9 Annex 4, ITU-R F.385-9 Annexes 3, 5 and ITU-R
F.386-8 basic + Annexes 3, 5, 7 (some administrations have added some additional carrier spacing compatible with
the ITU-R Recommendations). Some administrations have their own national channel arrangements.

3.

Most commonly used channel arrangements other than in ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2002) - ECC/REC/(02)06
(version 2011) Annexes 1.1, 2.1, 2.3 are:

7 110 - 7 425 MHz: ITU-R F.385-9 An3L (3 administrations of 38) 7.9 %

7 125 7 425 MHz: ITU-R F.385-9 basic L (7 administrations of 38) 18.4 %

7 425 7 725 MHz: ITU-R F.385-9 basic H (8 administrations of 38) 21.1 %

7 425-7 750 MHz: ITU-R F.385-9 An3H (3 administrations of 38) 7.9 %

7 425-7 900 MHz: ITU-R F.385-9 Annex 4 - ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2011) Annex 2.2.
(4 administrations of 38) 10.5 %

7 725-8 275 MHz: ITU-R F.386-8 Annex 6 - ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2011) Annex 1.2.
(11 administrations of 38) 28.9 %

4.

8 275 -8 500 MHz: ITU-R F.386-8 Annex 2 - ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2011) Annex 1.3.
(10 administrations of 38) 26.3 %.

In most countries military is present in at least part of the band 7125-8500 MHz. But approximately half of the
countries have parts of the band allocated for defence systems. In approximately one fourth of the countries a large
portion of the band is allocated for military usage. But in only 1 Administration of 38 the whole gap band is used
by the military.

STUDY OF CHANNEL ARRANGEMENTS IN THE FREQUENCY BAND 7725-8500 MHz OR OVERLAPPING


PART OF THIS RANGE
A number of administrations have implemented the current Annex 1 (7125-7725 MHz) of ECC/REC/(02)06. A more
detailed analysis is done for the band 7 725-8 500 MHz. In addition in some countries the band 7 425-7725 MHz is also
used in conjunction with a lower portion of the band 7 725-8 500 MHz.

Conclusion for frequency band 7725-8500 MHz or bands overlapping this bands

In the band 7 725- 8 500 MHz or overlapping bands 12 administrations of 38 use ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 2 (version 2002)
- ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 2.3 (version 2011) (31.6 %). Other usages are ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 1.2 (version 2011) ITU-R F.386-8 Annex 6, ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex 1.3 (version 2011) - ITU-R F.386-8 Annex 2, ECC/REC/(02)06 Annex

CONCLUSIONS

A number of the administrations (from 38 responses) had implemented the current Annex 1 (7125-7725 MHz) of
ECC/REC/(02)06(version 2002). In the gap (7725-7900 MHz) between Annex 1 and Annex 2 (7900-8500 MHz), a number
administrations had implemented their channel arrangement in accordance with different annexes of Recommendation
ITU-R F.385 and Recommendation ITU-R F.386. Table 5, Figure 1, Figure 3 and Table 8 are describing differences in
channel arrangements
Figure 2 illustrates military usage of parts of the band. In two thirds of the countries military is present in at least part of the
band 7125-8500 MHz. But approximately half of the countries have parts of the band allocated for defence systems. In
approximately one fourth of the countries a large portion of the band is allocated for military usage (in the lower part or in
the upper part of the band). But in only one Administration of 38 the whole gap band is used by the military.
Table 9 summarises the most implement channel arrangement in the CEPT. Figure 4 illustrates the most implemented
channel arrangement in the CEPT in 8GHz frequency band (7 125-8 500 MHz) not covered by ECC/REC/(02)06 (Version
2002) Annex 1 and 2.

Differences in channel arrangements (e.g. frequency ranges, carrier spacing, duplex spacing) are significant, therefore the
harmonization of the band 7125 8500 MHz is difficult.
ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2002) did not cover the whole range. It had a gap band between 7725-7900 MHz.

The ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2002) on the outcome of this report by introducing the most common approach taken by
administrations for managing the whole (or the available portions) of the band 7125 8500 MHz. Two options are
introduced depending on the national availability of the various sub-ranges, which give possibility to widely implement the
recommendation ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2011).
Note that the channel arrangement in 7725-8275 MHz, based on Annex 6 to ITU-R Recommendation F.386 (with 29.65
MHz channel arrangement providing 8 bidirectional channels), has been used for a long time by a number of CEPT
administrations because no other arrangement is available for this frequency band. However, when planning to restructure
the band or in case Administrations are newly designating this band to fixed wireless systems, Administrations are
encouraged to consider a new channel arrangement, based on 28 MHz channel separation (providing 9 bidirectional
channels), which is provided in ECC/REC/(02)06 (version 2011) as defined in Annex 1.2.1.
